A Message From Our President

Hello and Welcome to the digital life of Delta Gamma Zeta Theta chapter at Columbia University!

 

This extension of our fun-loving, goofy, and authentic selves attempts to share some of our fondest Delta Gamma memories with you and promote the vitality of our sisterhood.

 

I hope you will take your time exploring every corner of this site and learn about what the Zeta Theta sisterhood means to us.

 

Many successful, trailblazing, independent, empowering, female hustlers join our network each year and add to the eclectic generations of Zeta Theta women that make up our beautiful sisterhood.

 

Take time to read through our philanthropy page, scroll through our sisterhood feed, and reflect on our mission statement, getting to know what membership in Zeta Theta looks and feels like.

 

I hope your cyber travels through our digital existence imparts a feeling of comforting warmth upon you, the same comforting warmth that membership in Delta Gamma imparts on us when we realize we have found our home within the Zeta Theta chapter.

ABOUT US

When you join Delta Gamma, you join a network of leaders, philanthropists and supportive sisters.

LEADERSHIP

PHILANTHROPY

SISTERHOOD

Our Chapter Statement:

Our members are strong, confident, powerful, intersectional feminists in a system that is far from perfect. We are lucky to be able to come together as a unified community that recognizes the shortcomings of the sorority system.

 

Our members engage with social issues, showing support for #BlackLivesMatter, #MeToo, the LGBTQ+ community, the Jewish community, the Asian community, the Muslim community, the Latinx community, and other marginalized groups that are impacted by present conditions of society.

 

As an organization that comes from a historically privileged tradition, we acknowledge the many disparities in socioeconomic backgrounds within our sisterhood and the wider Columbia campus. Zeta Theta aims to provide support and visibility to all those impacted by financial burdens.

As a sisterhood, we strive to use our privilege and accessibility to New York City’s political landscape to learn and grow. We recognize that each individual in our chapter has a stake in the wider social conversation and that Zeta Theta has much to gain from our members’ lived experiences.

While Delta Gamma endeavors to work against oppressive gender stereotypes, sorority culture traditionally affirms constructs of conventional femininity and heteronormative assumptions. Taking that into consideration, Delta Gamma Zeta Theta seeks to further this conversation, utilizing our platform and acknowledging our responsibility as a visible organization on campus to give voice to important issues and empower our sisters to be agents of change

 
Leadership

We are so proud of our sisters' accomplishments both individually and as a group that we can't help but share them. Delta Gamma is an incredible organization filled with smart, strong and dynamic leaders. But, you don't have to take our word for it, let our sisters speak for themselves!

"Through Delta Gamma's many leadership opportunities, Delta Gamma members develop individually, while simultaneously advancing the organization as a whole. DGs are not only leaders within the chapter, through serving on the chapter management team or various committees called crews, but also on campus, through clubs, sports, and other activities. Delta Gamma membership also serves as a vital tool for networking. Our members can reach outside Zeta Theta chapter to Delta Gamma’s vast alumnae network through DG Pro in order to gain access to internships, find a new career connection or simply to ask for advice! Delta Gamma has allowed members to hone their communication skills, networking capabilities, confidence, accountability, and feelings of empowerment!" - Isabella Lajara, CC '20

Adventures Abroad

Delta Gamma ties extend far beyond your chapter, your state, and even your country. Just hear what some Zeta Thetas  had to say about the way sisterhood impacted their time abroad. 

I met another new member from DG only a few months before leaving for Paris, we decided to live together after only having talked for an hour. We both knew the values of our chapter applied to us in different ways and that would make us great roommates. During our time abroad, we both followed our diverse passions and interests taking different classes and meeting different people. My time abroad was so much more fulfilling because it felt like we completed each other every step along the way! - Esra Ar (Paris Fall 2016)

 
Alumnae

Through legacy and loyalty, Delta Gamma continues to grow, achieve, thrive and succeed. We are rich in heritage and tradition and our Delta Gamma pride empowers us to forever “do good”.

 

Delta Gamma provides endless unique opportunities for involvement and participation. Every initiated member is eligible for membership in any of the 225 alumnae groups when she leaves college, wherever she may live. 

 

In an alumnae group, a Delta Gamma alumna can find a group of friends in a new city, a fantastic networking connection for her career or an exciting service project. Alumnae dues keep Delta Gamma operating smoothly so that all members can reap the benefits of membership.  The most satisfying alumnae privileges include mentoring collegians, serving as advisers, assisting with recruitment, acting as a house corporation member and interacting at special occasions, all of which aid the collegians and their respective chapters.

 

Founder’s Day celebrations, member reunions and anniversary celebrations bring collegiate and alumnae chapters together. Typically, chapters celebrating 25th, 50th and 75th anniversaries have several decades of alumnae represented. Thus, collegiate members become acquainted with women of all ages, emphasizing that Delta Gamma is truly for a lifetime.
